We've got zero filter on these biceps and
Can I just tell you how proud I am of my forearms, even more than my biceps. Forearm strength is where it's at. That shows true functional fitness. If you're new to CrossFit, you know how hard it is so swing a kettlebell, hold on to a barbell, the pullup bar, because your grip strength is so weak. This is why bicep curls and cable pulldowns are weak sauce!
Please send me your photos to be featured on my blog on Fridays! Show me your guns! Or your quads. Or your abs. Please, show me your abs, mine need some serious inspiration right now, Lord.
After work and the gym (whooo, the weekend!) I made it home to shower and headed out to get my nails and hair done in preparation for our Christmas Ball tomorrow.
Nothing too fancy with the the hair, just a trim. But, I did snag these amazing new products that are rocking my limp locks to life. A little more money than I would normally spend, but this mousse, Phomollient, is incredible. And the Control Force hair spray kept my hair curled even after the sleeping in it, a Spin class, and a WOD. Yeah, seriously.
Speaking of workouts, the last few days have been brutal. My abs are sore. My ass is sore. My back is sore. Oh, I benched 110x5 on my last set of bench press following Wendler's 5/3/1. Which puts my 1RM right around 125. I like where my strength is going following Wendler. Can't wait to see where my numbers are in a few more mesocycles.
Speaking of freakish workouts, today's was a burner.
I posted this on Instragram, and a few others felt inspired to follow it. It's awesome to know I wasn't suffering alone through it today.
And if you don't have a barbell, just grab a friend! That's what friends are for!
Name one hair product you can't live without and why.
It has to be this new hairspray from Aveda, my limp and naturally straight locks love it. And it keeps my curls plump and bouncy, even in the crazy ATL humidity.
What's one movement you are trying to master?
Bar muscle ups, I just discovered a spot where I can practice them, so practice them I will. And walking on my hands.
